Here's a picture that I never would have dreamed I'd see! Following Brady’s Super Bowl MVP performance and the New England Patriots’ record 25-point comeback to beat the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI, it was the meeting everyone wondered about. After two years of the NFL going after Brady and the Patriots for deflate-gate, we knew the two had to come together at some point. It happened as confetti rained down on the field, and Goodell — apparently standing out of Brady’s sight — tapped Brady on the left arm prior to the commissioner’s presenting of the Lombardi Trophy, as seen on the Fox broadcast before it went to commercial break. Roger Goodell and Tom Brady shook hands after Super Bowl LI. It was as awkward as expected. (Getty Images) Brady slowly turned and looked down to see Goodell’s hand, the one that had signed off on 18 months of legal battles that cost both Brady and the league tens of millions of dollars and two years of anguish between the sides. He then shook Goodell’s hand, they exchanged a few words and it appeared that Goodell held onto Brady’s hand for an extended moment. [Yahoo Store: Get your New England Patriots championship gear right here!] And that was it, near as we can tell. Goodell went up on stage and presented the trophy to Patriots owner Robert Kraft and chatted with New England head coach Bill Belichick, a conversation that appeared more cordial and convivial than Brady’s chat with the commissioner minutes earlier. Brady spoke on stage to the dazed and rabid Patriots fans, but Goodell had left the stage by that point. What did Goodell say to Brady? We might never find out, unless Brady reveals it. Goodell likely just congratulated him quickly before walking off. But that nine-second video, even without the audio, spoke volumes of what the past two years have done to change things forever between them. On Monday morning, Goodell — presumably — will shake Brady’s hand at least once more and hand him the keys to a new car. Brady, one of the most famous men on the planet after his fifth Super Bowl title, likely doesn’t need that. But he might take special joy in everything that went down from the third quarter on, from leading an epic comeback to breaking Super Bowl records in the process and forcing Goodell to eat crow as it were. Think about this for a couple of minutes before you answer this question; Why do millions of football fans watch NFL games? Is it because they love to see this puke on the left ? I'm guessing that Roger Goodell thinks that the fans watch NFL games because HE is the "commissioner"; I have news for you, Roger! I have completely QUIT watching NFL games for the last several years, mainly because you ARE the "commissioner"! Roger Goodell.......the man who brings us all of the CRAP half-time "entertainment"! Sean Hannity said it all earlier this week when he was interviewing someone on his radio show while they were talking about all of the "uproar" over the NFL's announcement that "Hussey Gaga" would be providing the half time show; Sean told the guy......."yeah, I'll be watching the game because I love football.......but when the 2nd quarter ends, I'll turn the TV OFF until the 3rd quarter starts........because I have ZERO interest in Lady Gaga"! I'm thinking........"I quit watching the NFL and the Super Bowl about 2 or 3 years ago........mainly because I'm convinced that Roger Goodell is a useless, worthless SCHMUCK, who has a penchant for subjecting the Super Bowl TV audiences to the most WORTHLESS GARBAGE imaginable and calls it "half time entertainment"! I haven't watched an NFL game on TV for at least two, maybe three years now. Maybe if the NFL gets rid of "Roger the SCHMUCK" and starts presenting decent half time entertainment once again, I may possibly start watching Super Bowl games again. Now I have a confession to make; I have never been a big Patriot fan; I have never been a big Bill Belichick fan; I haven't even like the silly graphics on the Patriot's helmets; But after today........(while I was listening to the Super Bowl on a lousy radio station), I have suddenly decided to CHANGE MY MIND about Tom Brady! Sean Hannity was right.......Brady is a GREAT quarterback! Maybe not quite as "nice" as my all-time favorite, (Joe Montana), but Brady is GREAT never the less! What a performance! What a game! Today's Super Bowl will still be talked about and remembered long after anyone even remembers who the NFL Commissioner was way back in 2017!
